Question about Hotpoint WMA11 Front Load Washer
Wma10 door will not lock, door latch hits plastic slide. slide moves into position just as it should (now the problem) locking peg from switch does not move in to slot . if you move little toggle on switch by hand it is fine It seems as if switch not being energised. not a new m/c but has worked well, problem has arisen after two nights hard frosts may be a coincdence.any help would be well recived chris.
I think what you need is possibly a new door handle latch or spring, sometimes the spring breaks or becomes weak, it is unlikely to be a fault with the door lock, as they rarely fail.
To replace , undo all screws holding inner and outer door panels together, and prise the 2 panels apart, be careful the door glass does not fall and break
Take note of the position of spring and latch
Please rate my suggested solution, and feel free to leave a comment.
